Salamina is the biggest island of the Saronic gulf, and the closest one to Athens. The island is famous worldwide for the Battle of Salamis between the Greeks and the Persian Empire, which took place in 480 BC. It is also the birth place of Euripides, and the place where Aggelos Sikelianos, the great Greek poet, lived and worked.
Visit the Theater of Euripides, Georgios Karaiskakis’ -hero of the Greek Revolution- tomb, the Folk Art Museum and the Archaeological Museum. Don’t miss out on going swimming at the picturesque Peristeria beach, Aianteio beach and Iliakti bay.
A short trip to Aigina is ideal for those who want to admire the beauty of the Greek islands while staying in the capital. Lessons at our school in Athens continue in August and we would definitely recommend our students to visit this beautiful island if they want to live unforgettable holidays!
